“Hunger strike until death to protect our relatives and their friends” : Announcement of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – Imprisoned Members’ Cell (Greece)

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

Two months ago our escape plan from Korydallos prison was revealed. It’s something we claimed full responsibility for and made our self-critique. After that, an unprecedented hunt for the construction of guilt has started. The target is our relatives and their friends. We saw, two days ago, Giorgos Polydoros brother’s friend and a personal friend of Christos’ and Gerasimos’ Tsakalos being arrested. They, therefore, started talking about “regional members”, “mailers” and “revolutionary fund”. What for? For a bag of clothes? For some money from contributions and solidarity events? Or for the famous “shooting lasers”? The accused man did not even know that there were lasers in the bag. In addition, the most important is that these lasers are toys being sold for 2 euros in Monastiraki and with which we wanted to create confusion at the time of the attack. Why does the counter-terrorist agency not say it, but, in contrast, presents them as weapons?

So today, we watch the mother of Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos being arrested along with Gerasimos’ wife, because Aggeliki Spyropoulou was found in their family house. Aggeliki is a rare comrade and we are connected to her with absolute political affinity. The two comrades had told her that if she ever found herself in a difficult position, she could go to their house. Because we don’t abandon neither our ideas, nor our people. Aggeliki had been wanted for so much time and went to their house asking to be temporarily accommodated by their mother. What should their mother do? Close the door to her? She’s not that kind of person and knows the value of humanity for a chased man. In the house stays from time to time due to family relations the wife of Gerasimos Tsakalos, too. That’s why she was there as well.

The whole responsibility is exclusively ours. The relatives and their friends bear no responsibility, having nothing to do with the case and what they’re accused of. As for Aggeliki, we’ll be there for her and she knows she has our support. She’ll be among us, with her head up, in the difficult path we’ve chosen.

But we are not gonna sit here and watch them cannibalizing our relatives and their friends. The counter-terrorism agency crossed the line. We are their opponents not our relatives. So this is it. Since today, 2/3, we go on hunger strike until death to protect our relatives and their friends, so that they won’t end up in jail. The responsibility is ours alone and we are the ones taking it. UNTIL THE END! If they put them in jail, we prefer to choose death. This is what responsibility means and everyone makes their choices…

IMMEDIATE RELEASE OF OUR RELATIVES AND THEIR FRIENDS

THAT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CASE

Incendiary barrage in solidarity with fugitive comrade Ageliki and the imprisoned members of CCF by ‘Constant Unholy Synod / Iconoclastic Cell Clément Duval / FAI-IRF’ (Greece)

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

ONE STEP BEFORE…

In the modern age where everything moves continuously with terrible speed, not even the most shrewd ones manage to realize adequately and securely enough to estimate in time the consequences of the stated decisions of others upon their lives!

In modern Fortress Europe, where immigrants/refugees from the “third world” countries are shot in cold blood at the borders, flounder on the Aegean sea or become “sacks of potatoes” and “punching bags” inside police departments and detention centers. There where the global conflict of interests, between the two most powerful –but interdependent- poles of power and also the ambivalent smaller circles of influence that interlock with each other, goes on with unabated intensity, muffled but also unconcealed (as in Ukraine); Greece and other neighboring countries (inside and outside the EU) remain fully heterogeneous and controlled – colonial type-provinces of the capitalist center, where even breathing is taxed!

In modern civilization, with the toxic wastes that extensively pollute the earth and the aquifer, air pollution that contributes highly to the reduction of life expectancy, the techno-industrial noises of every kind leading to paranoia and the luminous advertising signs that cover the starlight, even the car’s petrol tank light exists to remind us of the misery we experience!

In the modern city and everywhere else where there are the catastrophic tentacles of industry and the lies of social hierarchy (eg. always talking about the artificial environment, the officials and lackeys of institutional authority etc.), there is nothing more beautiful than the screwed up faces and the broken bones, the debris and embers of the means and infrastructure of the Enemy!

Poster in solidarity with CCF by the Collaboration of Anarchists Memento Mori (Greece)

Saturday, February 14th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

The looks that embraced darkness, are lit only by the fire that envelops your aging world.

Another smear campaign by domination against the anarchist insurgents of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, has been completed. The state, in excellent cooperation with the benevolent consciences of reputable citizens and other honest revolutionaries, tried to isolate our comrades by hiding their desire to win freedom and by putting them in the same bag with what justice calls common crime.

This cowardly campaign of the state, aims not only to isolate the CCF members from the honest social ‘revolutionary’ circles, but also to distort the importance of insurrection as the supreme act of war against the existent completely by connecting it with the informal mirror of the state, the mafia.

CCF Escape case: “DE PROFUNDIS” – a communiqué from the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – Imprisoned Members Cell (Greece)

Monday, February 9th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

PUBLIC SELF-CRITICISM

We had no intention of contributing to the continuing of the public downfall and inner cannibalism that broadened with skillful architecturing by the police, journalists and the miserable interview given by Xiros[1]. But misery reigns…

i) Once a snitch… always a traitor

What is more infuriating than the snitch of 17th November[2] talking about morality… He who, in his preliminary statements in 2002 (they are published on internet) was whining and begging the cops to go easy on him, as a return for his cooperation with persecution authorities.

What is more challenging than the snitch being presented as the critic of the “movement”. He who, until this day, hasn’t even apologized to his former comrades for the life-long sentences he “offered” them with his unbiased confessions to the counter-terrorism agency (without them even so much as slapping him).

What is more contradictory than the ridiculous aspiring petty leader asking for the collective procedures and diversity to be respected. In his raving where he was impersonating the reincarnation of Karaiskakis[3], he was exhibiting an authority complex that was testing the nerves of the comrades, who were putting up with him and helping him to escape for an entire year, with huge patience and by risking their life and freedom from the cops.

Athens: Group of Popular Fighters claims responsibility for Israeli Embassy attack (Greece)

Saturday, February 7th, 2015

“Group of Popular Fighters”, which in the past had carried out an attack with Kalashnikovs against the German ambassador’s residence in the Athens suburb of Halandri on 13 December 2013, has taken responsibility for a similar attack on the Israeli Embassy which took place 12 December 2014.

Last week an anonymous caller rang mainstream news outlet Efimerida ton Syntakton and told them where they could find the USB stick which contained the claim. The document of responsibility is 19 pages long and has not been released yet.

The armed attack against the embassy followed a similar operational detail as used in their previous attacks, validating their claim, plus the results of the forensic ballistics confirmed that the weapons used in the attack were the same as the previous bloodless and highly-symbolic attacks which the group has taken responsibility for.

The armed group first appeared on 14 January 2013 when it carried out an attack on the New Democracy party headquarters on Sigrou Avenue. The group took responsibility for the attack in a statement released six months later.

During that attack a group of four people had attempted to fire a rocket at the offices, which however failed, as was explained in the communique issued by the group.

Another attacker subsequently fired 9 bullets at a window on the third floor. The bullets penetrated the glass with one bullet falling adjacent to (Ex-President) Antonis Samaras’s desk.

The attackers then left the scene in a Toyota Corolla that had been stolen a few days earlier. The charred remains of the vehicle was found in an empty lot 3-4 kilometers away.

The group’s second attack came on the 30 December 2013 when at least 4 people arrived outside the residence of the German Ambassador Wolfgang Dolt in the Athens suburb of Halandri. From the street the attackers sprayed the building with at least 60 bullets. The majority struck the outside of building including the outside wall of the room in which the ambassador’s daughter was sleeping. Another bullet entered the living room of an apartment behind the ambassador’s residence.

A statement was later issued claiming responsibility for the attack in which they stated that it had been carried out in memory of Dimitris Christoulas, a man who had committed suicide in Syntagma Square in April of 2012. “Dimitris Christoulas made the choice to give his life a tragic ending, as opposed to living a tragic life,” the authors wrote, adding, “However this act was not isolated, it did not concern only him and the dead end he had reached.”

In the same declaration the group revealed a double failure in its attempts to strike a Mercedes Benz dealership in a northern suburb of Athens with a shoulder fired missile on the 12th of January 2014, writing:

“On Sunday the 12-01-14 at about 23.00 we succeeded in approaching the target without being seen and this time we attempted to not have a repeat of last year’s misfortune outside of the offices of New Democracy, despite the fact that we came close to this outcome. And this because on the first attempt to fire a rocket against the offices of Mercedes, it once again failed due to faulty ammunition, however this time we employed the second rocket that we had brought with us and which ultimately fired normally and took the predetermined course. The fact that even as this text is being written about our attack it hasn’t become – in any way – known to enforcement authorities and to the media leads us to the following conclusions: either there has been a pathetic attempt to cover up the action (which will be revealed in the coming days after the publication of this declaration), or, because of our erroneous choice of shooting position, (possibly far from the target) the rocket did not travel the desired distance and is located around the perimeter of the Mercedes-Benz offices.”

Athens: ‘Solidarity is Struggle and Action’ / ‘Solidarieta’ e’ Lotta e Azione’ / ‘La Solidarite c’est la Lutte et l’Action’ (Greece)

Saturday, February 7th, 2015

SOLIDARITY IS STRUGGLE AND ACTION

During the last years after the outbreak of the world financial crisis, which, since 2009 has hit Greece among others countries, the state, under the authority of international financial organizations such as the International Monetary Fund, the European Central Bank and the European Union, has adopted a policy that aims to rescue the capitalistic system. This was followed at the same time by the intense increase of the suppression and the further hardening of the state against those who fight for the subversion of capitalism and the state, against those who choose armed revolutionary action, challenging the state’s monopoly of violence and power, against those who, using every means of fighting, stand against this policy of salvaging the system.

Athens: Incendiary device placed at Adonis Georgiadis’ bookstore by Commando Jorge Saldivia / FAI-IRF (Greece)

Saturday, February 7th, 2015

(23/01/2015)

While voters were preparing to hand over their dignity to the ballot boxes, entrusting the management of their lives in the country’s political personnel, an incendiary cell of the Informal Anarchist Federation went on the offensive wishing to contribute to the sharpening of the undemocratic deflection… We placed an incendiary device at Adonis Georgiadis‘ bookstore in Kifissia. Politicians’ property and businesses are also being targeted just as their physical integrity. Adonis Georgiadis is known for his far right views, a proponent of the type C prisons, he was the politician responsible for the ban of the telephone contact of the urban guerrilla of the Revolutionary Struggle Nikos Maziotis in a scheduled public political event on armed struggle while during the victorious hunger strike of anarchist comrade Nikos Romanos, he had publicly expressed his Thatcherite perceptions with which he supported the state’s deadly intransigence in both this and every imprisoned fighters’ hunger strike.

Let’s intensify our attacks!

A warm embrace to our imprisoned and wanted comrades!

Death to the state!

Informal Anarchist Federation – International Revolutionary Front (FAI / IRF)

Commando Jorge Saldivia

P.S. Comrade Jorge Saldivia was killed on the 3rd of October by an armed security guard during an attempted expropriation of a cash transportation in Chile. Jorge remained throughout his whole life consistent in the illegal anti-regime struggle. He fought in the ranks of the FPMR during the military dictatorship. He didn’t compromise with the democratic story of social peace and he continued the fight falling in battle with his gun in his hand. Jorge, as the other dead rebels, lives.

Communique of the Prisoners of the Women’s Wing, Korydallos Prison (Greece)

Monday, January 19th, 2015

On January 16th, 2015, an invasion of the EKAM group [anti-terrorist unit] took place in the men’s prison of Korydallos, keeping the whole prison closed from midday till the next morning, blocking the prisoners’ right to have yard time and general activities. Not long ago, on December 12th and on New Year’s Eve, prisoners’ transfers were ordered to Domokos prison, so that the C’ Type prisons are put into action. This is the modern Guantanamo bay. In the very next days, new transfers took place, and specifically there was the transfer of the two members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire to the white cells of Korydallos’ women prison.

In this electoral game played against prisoners, women prisoners have turned for a long time now into sacks of potatoes squeezed and crowded together in a warehouse of souls, without anyone giving a shit. While the women’s prison has three wings with 150 people capacity in each, right now 120 women have been crammed into the floor of one single wing, as the other rooms were given over for other uses or are empty.

We’re not going to analyze the data further, but not so long ago we made demonstrations denouncing all the problems we are experiencing today and the promises given by the representatives of the Ministry before our eyes, which were never put in place. Since we’re not going to stand for living like animals anymore, and, of course, no animal deserves to live like we do; since the C’ Type prisons today deal with the male prisoners, but tomorrow another one will be built for us; and, lastly, since we’re not going to put up with political games being played on our backs, as from today January 18th, 2015, to January 21st, 2015, we refuse to go back to our cells during the midday lockdown, as an act of solidarity with the demands of the male prisoners in Korydallos prison.

Communique of the Prisoners of Korydallos Prison (Greece)

Monday, January 19th, 2015

On January 16th 2015, an invasion of EKAM police officers [anti-terrorist unit] and other repressive forces took place and they carried out searches in our fellow prisoners’ cells. This is why our midday yard time did not happen and we remained locked all day. A few days ago, during the lunch time on New Year’s Eve, the initial transfer of prisoners was ordered so that the Greek Guantanamo bay of Domokos could be be inaugurated (although on this specific day transfers don’t regularly take place), playing this way their dirty electoral game on our backs. On Saturday January 3rd, after an invasion and investigation by the EKAM, our fellow prisoners and members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, Christos Tsakalos and Gerasimos Tsakalos, were kidnapped in the night and transferred to the isolation-basement of the women’s Korydallos prison. After all this, we decided to mobilize and as a first reaction we refused to be locked back in our cells in the midday, until Saturday January 24th 2015. In the following days, we are going to escalate our actions if necessary. We are going for:

1) The abolition of the ‘C’ type prisons.

2)The return of all those already transferred to the ‘C’ type prison in Domokos, and the return of our fellow prisoners Gerasimos Tsakalos and Christos Tsakalos from the isolation wing of the women’s prison of Korydallos, back to the prison they were in.

3) During this rebellion, we’re not going to accept any more transfers to the ‘C’ type prisons. We will consider every such act as revenge against our struggle and we are going to react accordingly.

When will Koutsimichali, the Director of Korydallos prison, and the prosecutors Poimenidis and Marsioni stop allowing these unlawful criminal acts? Are they ignorant of the prisoners torture or are they aiming for it?
Let everyone take their responsibilities.

Prisoners of the A, B, C, D, E wings of Korydallos prison

Neonazis of Golden Dawn gather at their local offices in Athens, only to be paid a visit by antifascists. The Nazis lock themselves in, behind a metal door and wait anxiously for their best buddies in the Greek police to save them.

Text by Nikos Romanos in solidarity with Dimitris Ch. (Greece)

Sunday, January 18th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

Since recently, we watch the two candidate governmental poles engaging in a communicative conflict in the face of the parliamentary elections about the future management of the Greek State. On the one hand are the managers of fear that roam from TV channel to TV channel talking about imminent disasters and on the other hand the vendors of hope that sell their merchandise to all those desperate and gullible people that envision a welfare state like the ones other European countries have, where exploitation is masked with social benefits.

In this political context, the State has unleashed a new anti-terrorist campaign that is presented through the media as a well-directed action movie where the cops come out as the winners. The final act of this poorly set scenario took place yesterday. On Friday morning, the cops barged into a wing of Avlona prison, searched only the cells of some of my former fellow prisoners and very good friends and confiscated telephone books, phone cards, personal notes and other personal things.

“Clearing the Air” by Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – Imprisoned Members Cell (Greece)

Sunday, January 18th, 2015

via InterArma:

Friday, January 16th 2015, police officers of the Blackmail Department accompanied by EKAM [anti-terrorist agency], invade the cells where the members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire are held, both in A’ wing, and the basement of the isolation wings (for the 2nd time within 10 days, after the 1st invasion of the same agency). During the searches that followed, they seized phone agendas, calling cards, USB sticks and personal handwritten political notes. The proposition was the ridiculous police–media fabrication which presents our organization to have connections with the so-called ‘night circles’ of extortion. These myths aim to depoliticize and smear the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and the circles of Black Anarchy. We shall clear up the obvious. Our code of values and our rebellious anarchist consciousness are opposed and hostile to that of organized crime and Mafia practices. Besides, the real organized crime rests in the centers of the State and the police. Beyond that, we neither apologize, nor regret our friendships. For days now, journalists, at the behest of the police, use our friendly relations, targeting our friend Vasilis Stefanakos [i], in order to present the fabrication of the “terrorists-criminals” osmosis and create new case files. We are going to defend this friendship of ours in every way, because it doesn’t fit into labels of “terrorists” nor “criminals”, which are given to us by the courts and the reports. This specific friend, like other long-term convicts who are mentioned in the news as so-called collaborators of ours, have NOTHING to do with the planned escape attempt. These ridiculous scenarios about the connection of the Cells of Fire with organized crime are trying to soil the obvious beauty of the comrades’ attempt to break the shackles of captivity.

What’s more beautiful than a prison exploding…

What’s uglier than a lie which is believed not even by its instigators…

What’s more obvious than vengeance…

Report about the case of the escape attempt of members of CCF (Greece)

Friday, January 16th, 2015

It was 3rd of January when after a wide operation of anti-terrorist police, the wanted comrade Ch.Xiros was arrested in the region of Anavissos. At the same time, there was detected a hideout in the same region. After a stake-out of this property cops discovered a large amount of ammunition and firearms (8 Kalashnikovs, 1 RPG, 3 rockets, hundreds of bullets, more than 150 kilos of explosives etc.), drawings regarding an escape plan of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire members and a fake ID of comrade Angeliki. (who was visiting members of CCF in prison). The very same night EKAM (special forces of anti-terrorist police) and officers of anti-terrorist police raided all the cells of CCF members in prison, and the comrades Christos Tsakalos and Gerasimos Tsakalos, as well as the comrades Spiros Mandilas and Andreas Tsavdaridis, were transferred to a solitary confinement wing in a dungeon under Korydallos prison where there are no other prisoners.

In the next days, the anti-terrorist police declares comrade Angeliki is a fugitive and starts an intense man-hunt for her arrest (after giving her photo in publicity through all TV channels), and they discover another safehouse in the region of Loutraki where they found dozens of ready-made bombs, a gun, and two stolen vehicles (1 jeep and 1 van).

The Minister of Public Order and the Chief of Police are making official statements announcing that police managed to prevent an escape plan of the members of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. According to this announcement, some comrades would attack and blow up the outside wall of the prison wing that members of CCF were held in, with a mega-bomb of 150 kilos of explosives put in a trapped vehicle (stolen van) and with the Kalashnikovs and the RPG would strike armed guards at the guard-houses of the prison.

After that, they would escape with CCF members in stolen vans which they intended to change with other stolen vehicles during the route of escape with the safehouses as destinations.

The imprisoned members of CCF published two texts (It was worth a try, Communique of War) in which they express their solidarity with comrade Angeliki and they closed with the phrase “Nothing is over…. Everything continues.”

Korydallos Prisons: ‘Communique of War’ by Conspiracy of Cells of Fire / FAI-IRF – Imprisoned Members Cell (Greece)

“First I shot him in the mouth to stop him talking crap;
then I shot him in the arm to stop him writing crap”

Jacques Mesrine on the kidnapping of a French journalist

The dirty war and the vulgarity of the journalists in regards to the case of the attempted escape of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire has no end. Targeting comrade Angeliki, emotionally blackmailing her parents, and spreading vile lies about her alleged relationship as a girlfriend of the one who has been arrested.

Angeliki is a friend of rebellion, anarchy, freedom.

If there were more people like Angeliki, struggle and anarchy would be the only possible reality.

SCUMBAGS SNITCHES JOURNALISTS – WE WILL TAKE REVENGE.

SOLIDARITY AND POWER by any means possible to comrade Angeliki and to all those wanted in connection to the same case.

Text from the comrades concerning the creation of an assembly of solidarity and action with the political prisoners.- english text

Texte des camarades concernant la création d’un ensemble de solidarité et d’action avec les prisonniers politiques.- texte français

SOLIDARITY MEANS ATTACK

i) C’ Type prisons – an act of war

C’ Type prisons wish to become the monument of the State’s victory against the urban guerrilla warfare. It is a bet for us, if we’re going to let a thousand tonnes of concrete, bars and locks beat the human will for freedom, a bet which is to be answered through action by the enemies of the regime and the friends of freedom.
For years now, politically, TV personalities of the system and salaried pen-holders of the police, have engaged in a mud fight against the urban guerrilla warfare, aid at depoliticizing it. “Osmosis of criminals and terrorists”, “cooperation between terrorists and organized crime”, “revolutionary pool” are the vanguard of the lie. Propaganda wishes to hide, covering with its mud, the self-evident constant revolt. A constant revolt of the ones who refuse to live as slaves and attack with arms against the leaders, the silence, the conservatism and the resignation of the majority of society.

Wishing to decouple the possible perspective of the violent insurrectionary action and to mutilate its diffusion, power uses lies and slander in order to present the armed urban guerrillas as insane criminals.
